Didn't you notice the parallels between twin mirror and true colors?

Of course, didn't wanna say because of spoilers though:

Spoiler

A child loses a father figure due to a mining company, albeit indirectly, the death is ruled an accident but the main character suspects foul play. The lead starts out isolated due to their power leading to being a social outcast, but they can eventually learn to become more socially capable with the use of their power. A love interest of the lead was caught in a mining accident which would eventually lead to the downfall of the mining company.

I JUST finished it, this is easily my favorite game from the series. It's very close to Before the Storm but its just 🤏 "that" much better for me. I would love to see more of both Alex and Steph, however I know the story ends there, if Max and Chloe show the track record.

 

I will say however even though she's never been the playable character (until the upcoming DLC), Steph is probably the coolest character in the series (imo). The Devs manage to make her feel undeniable chemistry with whoever she is around and I love that. 

 

True Colors >= Before the Storm > 1 >>> 2

I didn't hate 2, but it was the only game in the series so far that didn't really hit me emotionally in any way, it was just a story.

I havnt yet started true colors yet but I just finished marathoning the games and I e come up with some theories about them I didn't notice before when I first played through and just got the 1st time played part 2

 

After playing before the storm I honestly think that Max's power did not cause the storm in part 1 atleast not directly like it seemed. I noticed Rachel amber had power over the elements and I think that if max saves Chloe Rachel's spirit sees that Chloe is finally free of the ties holding her in the town so Rachel's spirit let's the storm loose destroying the town that ended up destroying her maxes power just helped free Chloe of the town

 

As for lis2 I think it's less about racism more about a commentary on police like here's what I saw

 

A cop stops to investigate 2 kids fighting draws a gun on kids who are unarmed ends up killing a guy and h and his car get tossed

 

Here's the thing the police automatically persue 2 kids which doesn't have logic there's no way a 9 year old and a mid teen could flip a car and throw that officer without leaving explosive scorch marks or wounding the body yet they get the blame not the officer who shot an unarmed man

 

Later twards the end they even flat out say as much that these kids couldn't logically be guilty of any of the crimes they are charged with there's zero evidence of their guilt besides them being present 

 

And yet the police hard core go after these kids and basically ignore actual criminals of all races that are hurting these kids 

 

What's interesting is this predates the BLM and riots and the national outcry on police transparency and how they get away with crimes in the game they wast time and man power hunting children as criminals rather than scared runaway's I mean if my parent was shot dead and I ran in fear and was suddenly hunted  as a criminal I'd probably run too

Considering this is a public platform, I thought someone who learned there were parallels, may want to learn what those parallels are.

I am on Chapter 2 (just started) so maybe a bit too early to really comment. Its a slow burn for sure. In both of the previous game, the major defining event happened really early on. Hopefully this extended time spent scene-setting will pay off. Id say im intrigued rather than excited by the story so far.....

Alex is very adorable.

 

She and her history is why i don't regret the purchase.

on the last chapter now, but chapter 3 was a COMPLETE waste of time 

 

it did nothing to enhance the story and was clearly just a filler episode

Just finished it.

Chapter 1-2 were good. But it was very jarring that people seemed to think their connection and loss of Gabe in chapter one (revealed in the early trailer so it's not a spoiler) was more important than what Alex was going through. In a game about emotions having time to internally focus on the loss of your brother was needed. Instead, the dead guy's sister's job was to take care of complete strangers and their feelings about your dead brother?

 

Chapter 3 was really great with their town event, same with Chapter 4.

 

Chapter 5 was bad.

Too many times I said out loud "what is happening?" "People wouldn't react this way."

The parts where Alex reflects on the past were really great, but dealing with her present-day situation was absolutely bad. Without any spoilers: Alex making her way to the final location was laughable and unrealistic, the group reaction to Alex showing up was almost like she wasn't there to half the people, their discussion, the reasoning for why Typhon was doing what they did, it was all so so bad and unrealistic in a game that's supposed to be grounded with strong relationships. Not much of it makes sense. Especially the Typhon motive. It's like they wanted a big emotional impact, but couldn't make it work and just said "uhhh how about we put it on this character to surprise the players cause reasons?"

 

 

True colors is a good game and better than LiS2, but so far nothing comes close to LiS1.

 

I think LiS1 stands out because it's more relatable we didn't go to a snooty art prep school where kids are having drunk parties with teachers at the school, but we know what it's like to be friends with some of those kids shown in the game, to be picked on, to confront a bully or be bullied, to grow a friendship out of nothing, to help a classmate in troubled times, etc. Max and Chloe were always together which helped the impact of the last episode's choice become stronger. Where True Colors main connection felt like it was a daiting sim between hunky I care too much small town simple life park ranger or everything-nerd culture punk-rock no flaws indy gurrl. Even with Ryan and Steph being good characters, they didn't do more than who do you want to date? Even the impact of choices and consequences didn't feel as lasting as they did in LiS1.

Just finished the game and I loved it! I can see an argument for waiting on a price drop for any game under 20 hours. However, that's why I buy physical and trade it in before it does price drop. Great game though, and i'd even say it was better than the first one.

Chapter 1-2 had my interest. Chapter 3 is boring AF. I won't lie- this is exceedingly boring. I do not find the plot that interesting at all. The other two games had more of my attention. I wish there was a skip dialogue option. I honestly just want the plat at this rate. The other two games were a lot of fun. This however, is not. I am glad that I did not buy it. I rented mine from gamefly. Happy it has a free PS5 upgrade... but I will most likely pass as I have no desire to replay this game again at all

I love this series but everything about this game just felt like Deck Nine trying to emulate Life is Strange 1. At the end I just felt disappointed more than anything. I feel like they need to break the mold and do their own thing with this series, similar to what DontNod did with Life is Strange 2 (my personal favorite of the series).

I had mixed feelings about this. I felt it was slow-burning for a start but really started to get into its stride later on. Chapter 3 isnt as inconsequential as people make out, it does alot of subtle teasing and laying foundations for what is to follow. I take on board some of what was said about Chapter 5 by the last poster, some of it was unwieldy and unrealistic. Not entirely sure it is worth the full price and it isnt as good as LiS 1 but LiS 1 was groundbreaking and people have to accept it will never be repeated again....so where does the series go from here? Im not sure, id like to see it maybe carry on with the same characters once in a while....

Ok, after beating the game my final thoughts are this: It has a good story. Sad, but good plot. Chapter 3 and 4 are completely still pointless. I really wish there was a way to skip over or speed up the boring af dialogue though. I decided to go after the plat for the PS5 version after all (speed run) but the story is lacking. I understand the points of chapters 1-2, and 5. But to me 3-4 are completely a waste of time and have nothing whatsoever to do with the main plot except the tail end of chapter 4.
